Pack your suitcases and get all of your friends and family into the holiday spirit with an inspired set-up for your wedding photographs. From your day, you’ll be wanting photos to remember, so, setting up unique photo opportunities is the way to go with achieving the most amazing snaps! At the beach, you want something to show of your experiences and getting snap happy with your camera is #1 on the agenda to capture all of those special moments together! If you’re looking to give your wedding all of the tropical, laid back beach vibes possible – don’t just stop with the decor!

Embrace the California vibes of an afternoon surfing at the beach with this free-spirited theme for your wedding day. Whether you’re a fully-fledged surfer or looking for something that’s a bit different, the surfboard motif is easy to work into your day. Live the dream with miniature wooden surfboards for your tables, these can also function as a sweet keepsake for your guests to take home with them! Keep the party with outdoor games and activities for your guests to play out in the sun to properly live the adventure!
When it comes to themes for beach weddings, nothing quite says sunsets and mañana-mañana like brightly coloured, tropical fruits! To give your guests a taste of the exotic, consider delectable centrepieces that are piled high with island fruits and fresh flowers. You could serve slices of watermelon and even shake up your cocktails by distributing them to the wedding party in coconut shells! Whilst drinking from these, make a buffet of tropical fruits (perfect for the warmer weather) that your guests can help themselves from, creating their own unique combinations and enjoying a proper taste of the sunshine!

Food’s Up Alfresco
The perfect way to end your tropical themed beach wedding? With food served out of doors! We love a wedding BBQ and finger food can be a great way to go when it comes to feeding a crowd and keeping everyone happy! To run with the tropical, beach theme, get creative with how you present the food: Palm leaves are a unique substitute for plates and napkins for smaller servings!
